Engie gearing for growth as it swings to profit

French energy company and LNG player Engie swung to profit for the year 2017, reporting an income of €1.4 billion ($1.74 billion), compared to a €400 million net loss in 2016. 

Engie noted that the result was boosted by “notably lower impairments” compared to 2016.

The company said it has repositioned its portfolio, laying foundations for future growth, making it less exposed to market risks.

According to the latest report, Engie eyes a sustained growth in 2018, expecting a net income, excluding exploration & production and LNG between €2.45 and €2.65 billion, a gross increase of 8 percent compared to 2017.

Speaking of the results, Engie’s CEO Isabelle Kocher, said, “the return to organic growth, which is the result of our teams’ work and engagement, is confirmed and allow us to anticipate strong results and a higher shareholder remuneration for 2018.”

Revenues increased by 0.3 percent on a reported basis to €65.0 billion and by 1.7 percent on an organic basis compared with 2016. Reported growth was affected by changes in the scope of consolidation (€583 million negative impact) due mainly to the disposal of the merchant power generation assets in the United States, Poland and the United Kingdom.

Organic revenue growth was driven by an increase in volumes and prices on commodities sold in the gas midstream business in Europe and liquefied natural gas (LNG) business in Asia, an improved performance of the thermal power generation plants in Europe and Australia.

These positive developments were partially offset by a fall in sales of natural gas to business clients in France and by a decrease in hydro renewable energy generation in France.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.
